Summary
Part ribald farce, part lyrical contemplation, Wendell Berry's novel is the story of a place--Port William, Kentucky--the farm lands and forests that surround it, and the river that runs nearby. The rhythms of this novel are the rhythms of the land. A Place on Earth resonates with variations played on themes of change--looping transitions from war into peace, winter into spring, browning flood destruction into greening fields, absence into presence, lost into found. World War II is nearing its end when Mat Feltner's life is disrupted by the news that his only son is missing in action. Mat, his wife, and their daughter-in-law must gradually come to terms with their personal tragedy just as their whole community must deal with this shattering period in history
